Troubled Water Poster

It's here! Oil & Water Don't Mix is proud to have been involved in helping bring this new film to life.

Troubled Water is an adventure/conservation documentary that follows Chris Yahanda and William Wright as they attempt a 36-day, 425-mile standup paddleboard journey from Mackinac Island to Lansing. Along the way, the lifelong friends experience the wonder of Michigan’s abundant natural resources and meet the passionate people dedicated to protecting those resources. Although the Great Lakes face daunting environmental challenges, a community centered on a shared love of water provides hope for the lakes' continued preservation.
